Apartment聽dwellers know how tricky it can be to flex that green thumb. With minimal space and sunlight, an edible garden or flower聽wall聽can seem like a far-fetched dream.聽But if you鈥檝e got a balcony 鈥 no matter how tiny 鈥 the botanical聽possibilities are endless. The 14聽gorg聽urban gardens聽below are here to prove it to you, one pretty pot at a time. So get that soil prepped, because you鈥檙e about to be basking in聽lush #jungalow bliss.

1. Pull Up a Bench:聽Keep things interesting by pairing a little bench and seat cushions聽with an outdoor rug and a handy side table. The bench and table will allow you to display plants at different levels. That way, you can be totally surrounded in your green oasis. (via Apartment Therapy)

2. Vertical Wall Planters:聽Bar carts 鈥 they鈥檙e not just for your living room anymore! Use yours to mobilize indoor/outdoor plants and change up the jungle vibes of your balcony聽on a whim. Then cover a wall in a slotted fence and deck it out with potted herbs. We鈥檙e thinking bar cart + herbs = mojitos all afternoon.聽(via Domino)

3. Boho-Chic Vibin鈥: Pull off a playful bohemian聽look with all of the bright colors, cascading vines, and succulents in copper planters. Add some string lights and lanterns and you鈥檒l have yourself a relaxation paradise. (via Kendall Jackson)

4. Jungalow Living:聽If you鈥檙e a garden guru, go all out!聽Fill your balcony with聽tons of flowing and sprouting low-maintenance plants. Just leave enough room between the crawling ivy and mismatched pots for a chair so you can escape to your *happy place* anytime.聽(via Livet Hemma)

5. Outdoor Sanctuary:聽This setup has all of the chill vibes. Keeping textures and tones earthy allows all that greenery to seriously pop! Let things get a bit overgrown and enjoy how it makes your patio聽a private, uber-relaxing getaway.聽(via Elle Decoration)

6. Porch Swing and Chill:聽Doesn鈥檛 this all-white setup look dreamy AF? Pair low-maintenance (AKA聽minimal mess) plants, like cacti and ferns, with a jute rug and a hanging porch bench to get your veg聽on in a serious way. (via Adore Magazine)

7. IKEA Hacks FTW:聽This little balcony is barely bigger than a hallway, but totally works, especially with that sheer privacy curtain. Make use of everyone鈥檚 favorite聽rolling cart from IKEA to store plants and keep watering cans neatly displayed. (via Apartment Therapy)

8. Succulent Heaven:聽This little balcony is proof that you can never have too many succulents. Get creative with your potting by embracing tiered planters聽and putting聽these little beauties in every available corner.

9. Escape to the Country:聽It鈥檚 almost unbelievable that this impressive garden is built on a fire escape. It鈥檚 proof that even a patio without much light can make聽a little green magic happen, especially when you bring tall trees into the mix. (via Katie鈥檚 Folly)

10. Comfy Seating for Days:聽Wouldn鈥檛 you just love to find this hidden corner tucked away on聽your patio? Make it happen聽with huge, potted palms and bursts of blue, striped cushions. Now the only thing missing is a good book and a big glass of wine.聽(via Historias de Casa)

11. Light and Refreshing: You can brighten up any balcony聽鈥 even a teeny, tiny one 鈥 with pretty cushions and a patterned rug. Some wispy greenery will give the sleek look just the touch of whimsy needed for a totally down-to-earth reading nook. (via Oh What a Room)

12. Neat and Tidy:聽Keep your balcony versatile with simple聽folding furniture and an聽inexpensive shelving unit that can house all of your sprawling foliage聽in a snap. (via IKEA)

13. Rainbow Chairs:聽Colorful chairs will brighten up your life in an instant. Rather than fill up the whole space聽with a table, use a wall-mounted shelf instead. Because the more room there is for bright pink flowers and leafy clusters, the better. (via Antic & Chic)

14. Pallet Wall: You don鈥檛 need a ton聽of space to make your balcony into a full backyard. Just think outside the box with faux grass patches, wood decking, and white pebbles for water drainage. Surround it with vertical pallets and you鈥檙e ready to grow聽the garden of your dreams. (via Homify)
